(Las Vegas, NV) — The Nevada National Guard and members of the Red Cross of Southern Nevada are lending a hand to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.
A Reno-based C-130 Hercules aircraft left for northern California’s Moffitt Field yesterday to pick up a rescue boat, a truck and several airmen. From there, the plane will eventually land in North Carolina.
It’s unclear how long the relief mission will last.
Four southern Nevada Red Cross volunteers headed out to various locations around the eastern US ahead of the massive storm to help with everything from transportation to fund-raising.
